  • Mrs. Sudrzynski's Anatomy Eye-Vision Lab!

    Anatomy students in Mrs Sudrzynski's class had the opportunity to explore their visual senses and test out their peripheral vision, depth perception, pupil dilation, near/far sightedness, and create a model of an eye! In class this week we reviewed eye anatomy and physiology, and this lab was a great way to intertwine both notes and hands on activities. Students did a great job following lab instructions and got very accurate results! They even learned a little bit more about their own eye sight and visual abilities.Click below to check out more pics.
